Bristow Group and its UAV partner Sky-Futures have carried out a first in helicopter and drone interoperability, with a trial involving a manned helicopter and UAV working together.

The collaborative effort saw a S-92 hover 500ft above the ground and the crew maintain track on a UAV 200ft away using an iPad app – even when they were unable to main visual contact on the UAV.
